Approximate timings can be found below, but it is expected that two return trips between Skipton, Settle, Appleby and Carlisle will run every day (except Fridays) from Mid-July to Early September.
Last year, the trains were hauled from Skipton to Appleby from a pool of Class 20, 47, 37 as well as a Class 40 hauling the final trains of the season.
Adrian Quine – Director of Rail Charter Services Ltd said: “A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes to build on the success of The Staycation Express last year. We are working closely with our partners and stakeholders with innovation at the heart of everything we do and look forward to announcing further initiatives soon”
More announcements regarding the full livery, timetable and on train services will be made in April.
